Fuse #8

A shout out from SLJ

The School Library Journal blog, presided over by the charming Amy Bowllan, has given Fuse #8 a shout out of sorts. Ms. Bowllan has a series on her site where she discovers why children's literature blogs have names like "Chicken Spaghetti" or "A Fuse #8 Production". For those amongst you who've wondered why I named my blog after something that sounds as if it might blow-out in the event of a power surge, read my explanation on her site. All shall be clear...

And still that car is rolling, though the Ani Difranco "Righteous Babe" sticker is beginning to peel. Actually, it gets safer and safer all the time -- other drivers give a wide berth to The Car That Has Nothing to Lose. And really, having the ceiling fabric come completely unglued and swag down just makes it look custom-upholstered when you thumb-tack it back up at regular intervals.

Congrats on the shout-out, and thanks for passing along the link. I HAD been wondering where the title came from...

Re: the car still working - I thought I removed that Ani DiFranco sticker years ago! Plus, if the ceiling starts hitting your head, just take a stapler and give it a few ka-chunks. I should note, for those of you who wonder why I should still care about a car I do not own, I gave it to my little brother and he's been driving it ever since. It's a 1989 Buick, and held together by a combination of rust and spit. And the fuse must still be removed...

I thought for sure that Fuse #8 had something to do with theatrical lighting. Your Buick story made me miss my old Pontiac Grand Prix boat-car, which had a very groovin' 8-track tape player.

I did work in theater for a while when I was in high school and college, but never to the point where they'd let me within ten feet of a real fuse. As you can see, I had enough trouble with those of the automobile persuasion.
